Undergraduate Research in Biology and Mathematics


Research Overview

The objective of this project is to engage interdisciplinary teams of biological and mathematical undergraduates in research projects at the intersection of biology and mathematics and statistics. Each year, four research teams involving two students and two faculty members representing both biology and mathematics and statistics work on projects during the academic year in preparation for an intensive 8-week summer research program.  These projects are primarily selected from existing research projects of biology faculty where mathematics and statistics are anticipated to make a significant contribution.
